Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Athens pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice has or­dered an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into reports of child abuse at a nurs­ery in Aspropy­r­gos, western At­tica. Ac­cord­ing to the claim of one of the moth­ers who spoke to Skai TV, chil­dren would re­turn from the 2nd Nurs­ery of Aspropy­r­gos with bruises, but were un­able to re­act be­cause they were only 2 years old. The mother also claimed that she was told by one of the staff mem­bers that chil­dren were rou­tinely sworn at and hit over the head. The par­ents and other staff mem­bers re­port­edly called on Aspropy­r­gos Mayor Nikos Mele­tiou to in­ter­vene, but to no avail, un­til the is­sue was pub­li­cized on the web­site of Go­nis, a promi­nent or­ga­ni­za­tion pro­mot­ing parental and chil­dren’s rights. The in­ci­dents al­legedly took place at the end of 2015 and early 2016.
